When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were together, they fell in love with a French chateau after seeing it from the air in a helicopter.
They bought the 17th-century property — Château Miraval — for a hefty price after persuading its American owner to sell.
Now the lady hired to light the chateau is throwing shade on Brangelina with a lawsuit claiming they failed to give her credit.
“Odile Soudant also claims the superstar former couple drove her company towards financial ruin by failing to honour bills for a multimillion-euro project to illuminate the … property,” said The Guardian.
“In April, the Paris court of appeal ordered one of the Pitt/Jolie companies, Château Miraval – named after the vast estate – to pay Soudant €565,000, including €60,000 for damaging her reputation.”
The British paper said that when her requests for money to pay her employees and contractors went unanswered, she was forced to suspend company operations.
Pitt soon sent her an email saying: “I don’t know how things happen in France but in the United States, friends don’t attack friends. I’ve been nothing but a fan of your work. Do not attack. Let’s finish the project and be proud of it. The work is too good to end on a bad note. Life is too short, my friend.”
A second mail read: “Don’t waste time with legal action. Follow your artistic journey and don’t worry about the rest.”
